Odyssey: Infrared Imaging System

shared biology equipment

The Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System introduces a new standard for Western blot analysis – direct infrared fluorescence detection. Infrared detection gives you the quantitative analysis and wide linear dynamic range that the old paradigms of chemiluminescence and visible fluorescence can’t. Strong and weak bands on the same blot are accurately detected without the uncertainty and inconvenience of multiple exposures, and without spending time in the darkroom.

The Odyssey System gives you clear, sharp, reproducible bands without fuzziness or "blowout". Bands hidden by overexposure with chemiluminescence become clear when imaged with Odyssey.
